About

Yoga and Therapy with Pippa

I’m Pippa and I am a counsellor for children and young people and a yoga teacher to adults and children. I specialise in art and play therapy, allowing children and young people to choose how they express themselves, empowering them to take the lead in their own healing process.

I have been working with children and teenagers for the last 10 years and practising yoga since 2005. I first became aware of the challenges that children and young people face whilst working as a classroom teacher. My passion to help children and young people to grow, develop and heal led me to train as a child and adolescent counsellor.

My journey into the world of yoga started aged 15 and culminated in me taking a teacher training in Bali, learning from the great Carlotta Castangia. My knowledge of the neuroscience and physiology of emotions and my personal flare for playfulness mean my classes are nourishing yet challenging with a creative edge.

Therapy for Children and Teenagers

Sometimes life can be hard. Sometimes we need a bit of extra support to get through difficult times. This is especially true for children and young people, getting the help they need at crucial times in their emotional and social development.

I specialise in art and play therapy, using this particularly in working with younger children. Older children and adolescents may prefer talking therapy but whatever they choose the child or young person leads the session. This can be an empowering process, allowing them to open up and begin the healing process at their own pace in their own way. My approach is integrative, using evidence-based psychotherapeutic tools which are appropriate to each client’s unique needs. I specialise in working with children with behavioural and emotional difficulties. This may be due to parental separation, trauma, bereavement, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression and other difficulties facing children and young people today.

I offer private therapy sessions in Ealing, West London and work in primary and secondary schools all over London.

Yoga and Mindfulness for Kids

With so many pressures and distractions for kids nowadays both online and at school, it can be hard to learn to breathe, relax, think. But taking a few moments to breathe, to calm the nervous system is wonderful for developing brains and bodies. Classes are fun and playful but teach children essential reflective, calming and thinking skills. They can be done in schools, private classes at home or incorporated into therapy sessions.
